OnePlus has been focusing a lot of resources on the mid and budget market segment for smartphones and OnePlus Nord was their first step for entering the mid-range phone segment. However, as per the latest news and leaks, OnePlus might be working on a new smartphone that will be totally focused on the budget category segment. The new phone will also be a part of the OnePlus Nord series and will house the Snapdragon 460 chipset which is mostly used in the budget category smartphones.
It means that it is going to be the cheapest smartphone from OnePlus to be launched till date. The information was leaked on Twitter from “the_tech_guy” where a series of codes can be seen giving all the details about the processor and chipset.
The code has mentioned Snapdragon 865, Snapdragon 855, Snapdragon 765, and Snapdragon 460 Soc as well. Since the company already has made a smartphone on all chipsets, the only one remaining is the 460 Soc. In another unverified leak, it was also claimed that the OnePlus might be launching a new smartphone with either Snapdragon 662 or 665 and will be priced at $240.
A similar phone was also noticed on Geekbench which was codenamed “Clover”. The phone was running on Snapdragon 660 with 4GB of RAM and Android 10. Although OnePlus has made no official announcements about the same, we can surely expect the company to launch a new smartphone in the month of September, which will be targeted towards the budget or mid-range segment.
